Sky News host Chris Kenny says he’s “heartbroken” about the impending ban on climbing Uluru, but the decision is up to the traditional owners in the end and the rest of Australia will have to accept it.
“I just don’t think they should and I think they might change their mind.”
Adding to Mr Kenny’s remarks former Labor communications minister Stephen Conroy said “it’s their right”.
“There are plenty of places in the Vatican no one’s allowed to go because the Vatican decides they can’t,” Mr Conroy added.
The pair’s remarks come after One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson climbed Uluru after controversially calling on Indigenous leaders to overturn the impending ban.
The last day to climb has been set for October 26.
